Heartless...





I am not...


But I am going to be fine (yay!). My heart will get fixed on May 22nd, that's a long way off. So if the Doctors don't think it's an emergency than I must be okay!!!! The reason my right ventricle is enlarged, is because of the hole in my heart. As it turns out, I was born this way and just never knew it. The only issue that is residual from this defect, is because I didn't fix it when I was a child- my life span will be shorter. Big frickin' deal, to me it's just one more reason to embrace each day.



Knowing is half the battle!!!!!



I am so fucking happy about everything, I don't even care that I have to have some minor heart surgery. Bring it.

Well, that is good news! See?
And your lifespan will be shorter? Shorter compared to what? Instead of living to 90, you'll live to 89? It's like those stories you hear from people: 'My doctor gave me three weeks to live, and THAT WAS FIVE YEARS AGO!!' It's all relative!

Like you said, though, it just gives you an excuse to get the most out of every day that you're here. So get back to work! Your Synthetik hussies won't photograph themselves! ;-)

I knew they would figure it out and fix you up fit as a fiddle! Did they say why it enlarged the ventricle? Was it because it had to work harder and it built up, kinda like Popeyes' forearms? And just what is Popeye doing to build them up that way? Oh damn, stop! I just gave myself a bad visual, never mind.

Anyhow, if you start feeling bad about losing a few years, visit an old folks home to see what you'll miss. Those golden years are highly over rated.
